Champions League Bayern vs Benfica
10 points in four rounds where they won three games and drew one, with seven goals scored and one conceded.
This is the Bayern Munich’s European balance, which arrives in this game following another game losing points to the Bundesliga, pathetically, Niko Kovac is under great challenge and the Croatian should not resist many more poor results if the bad sequence remains.
Winning 2-0 early and 3-1 near the end of the game at Fortuna Düsseldorf, Bayern left 3-3, already nine points behind them and added a third consecutive game without a win for the championship, after the home draw with Freiburg (1-1) and the loss with Dortmund out (3-2).
Tolisso, James Rodríguez and Thiago are confirmed lows for this game, with Gnabry and Hummels still in doubt.
Benfica have an extremely difficult situation in the Champions League, they will have to win the two remaining games in the group stage and hope Ajax will not win again when the Dutch are out to visit AEK in Athens and host Bayern.
With four points, the Eagles continue with a win, a draw and two defeats, four goals scored, six conceded.
After one of the worst series of results of recent years, Benfica have come from two defeats against Tondela for the League (3-1) and Arouca (2-1) for the Portuguese Cup.
Salvio is confirmed low for a game where Rui Vitória has Grimaldo, Fejsa and Yuri in doubt.

Both teams come in a bad showdown that has been translated into the results.
If Bayern have made the worst campaign in the Bundesliga of recent years, Benfica have been poor football without ideas and even come from a win full of scare in the Cup against modest Arouca.
Quite frankly, I do not believe in the value of any of the teams to win this game, it is natural and normal for Bayern at home to react and repeat what they achieved in Lisbon on the first lap, still I believe that the current moment of the two teams can result in some defensive errors and I believe that the best option to have in this game is to enter the market of overs.
Betting Tips: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals
